    Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones and all.. but IMHO I think a pair of black shoes (with grey socks) would have been better for this ensemble. Or, swinging to the other extreme, a richer shade of brown (burgundy, oxblood?) in calf. Or dark suede.

    Just my 2 cents. Otherwise, love the look.

    Thanks. i agree black would've worked. Went with dk brown because I'm wearing an SC & the SC has a brown overcheck (hard to see in the pic I know). And the shirt is blue despite the pic too.

    ^with all the above taken in to consideration, would a navy knit not have been a better choice than black then?

    Ah, I stand corrected. I thought the shirt was white.

    It would- not that it would show in this pic. I'm flaunting the no black tie with brown shoes, or is it no brown tie with black shoes convention?

    Nice fits all! [​IMG]

    Been a while. Thematically blue on top: blazer, fine blue pencil stripe, blue in shantung, blue in square. Feeling a bit blue too! Not seen: light gray hopsack trews with British tan oxfords.
